Preventing SD clips from stretching in an HD Encore project
on Oct 21, 2011 at 2:37:32 pm

Good morning, everyone. I'm putting together a collection of the first five photographic montages I've done for my daughter. The first two were done in SD resolution, the final 3 in HD resolution. I've got my menus set up and linked correctly. DVD plays great EXCEPT I'd rather not have Encore stretch the two 4:3 clips/timelines to 16:9. Is there any way to prevent Encore from doing this? I've also noticed in the properties (I think), the 4:3 or 16:9 choice is grayed out for the first two clips...?

Thanks in advance...

Regards,
Marc

You'll need to do this in Premiere Pro or another NLE.

Nest your 4:3 montage sequence/clip into an SD 16:9 sequence. Don't scale to frame size. You'll end up with black pillar boxing on the sides of the clip. When you export your sequence as 16:9, it will include the black bars. En will see the black areas as part of the 16:9 frame and not try to stretch the 4:3 video.

If you hate the black bars, then you can creatively fill those areas with other stuff. Check out sports and news channels for ideas.

Jeff, thanks very much. That makes perfect sense. Since her birthday is tomorrow, I was hoping for a setting change. :) This will still be very easy to do. Thanks again!

Regards,
Marc
